Biscotti

By request, I’m posting my recipe for biscotti, which is sort of a synthesis of several recipes I had found online, but which I found to be the tastiest combination.

Ingredients:

  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3/4 C sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2-1/4 C flour
  • 1-1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1-1/2 tsp cinnamon

 Cream butter, sugar, eggs & vanilla. Sift together and mix in all the dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly until it forms a ball. Divide in two halves.

Roll or pat out on floured surface to a loaf about 3/4″ thick & about 3″ wide.

Bake at 325 until golden & firm, about 25 minutes – I use a baking stone to get a perfectly golden underside.

Remove loaves to a cutting board and slice into 1/2″ slices.

Place slices cut side down back onto the baking sheet or stone. Bake another 15 minutes. This second baking is what makes it biscotti 🙂

When done, stack to cool before enjoying with a cup of Italian coffee…
